Skype is the new Google

Sometimes you just have to blog. Skype is a internet telephony service that now goes beyond anything else. Not only can you call free computer to computer. Not only can you call a normal phone from your computer (SkypeOut). Now you can have a phone # assigned to the client and people can call you at that number from any normal phone (SkypeIn). Not to mention voicemail.

Skypeout has 0.02 eurocents per minute for US-Europe and SkypeIn only costs 30euros per year to have this number. The time where all data will be broadcasted through the net is not far, and phone will be the first service to become obsolete. Television and movies will soon follow. Why bother having a TV when you stream everything off the net?
